CHICAGO

A Saturday in Chicago #2

Connor and I actually stayed in Chicago for the weekend. We have been going so many places it feels like so it’s nice to be home for the weekend. As always, Connor and I tried to make the most of our Saturday.

We slept in a bit, but not super late because now sleeping in is like 8:30 lol. We headed to Andersonville to walk around and get coffee. We went into some shops and just enjoyed the nice, chillier weather. I love that it is starting to feel like fall.

The coffee shop we went to is called The Coffee Studio. Connor got the caramel latte and I got a matcha latte. Both were yummy! After walking around a bit, we got back on the train to stop by our friend’s house.

We chatted with our friend a bit and then got back on the train so we could go to Chinatown for dinner. After a very full train ride, we made it to Chinatown. I had never been so we walked around quite a bit and decided where we wanted to eat. We decided on a dumpling place called Qing Xiang Yuan Dumplings. Connor got pork and shrimp dumplings and I got mushroom and zucchini dumplings. We both loved what we got and were really hungry, so they hit the spot.

After dumplings we went to Joy Yee to get bubble tea. I heard a lot of good things about it, so I wanted to try it. I got a oolong milk tea with bubbles– it was definitely the best bubble tea I have ever had! After bubbles, we headed home for the night. We were out so long and walked around all day so we were ready to relax and watch some TV. What did you do this weekend?

  1. It looked like you had another fun weekend! I love seeing all of the coffee shops and restaurants you go to. I worked at the ice cream shop yesterday and I’m working tonight but since it’s getting cooler out we’re not as busy, which is nice. I ran 3 miles last night and it felt good. I’m hoping to run a few times this week because it’s sometimes easier for me to run in cooler weather.

    1. We are trying to go to a new coffee shop each weekend, so it has been fun finding our favorites. That’s awesome! The cooler weather definitely makes me want to get out and run too. I want to try to run a few times this week too and go on some walks each night.
